I had some lovely help the day before with prep, namely my cousin Liz and my Aunt Becky. Several ladies of my parents church pitched in and made dozens and dozens of delicious cookies and served the day of the funeral. I cannot thank them enough.

"I sometimes think the chef end of cooking is not the real end of cooking. Cooking is all about homes and gardens, it doesn't happen in restaurants." --Delia Smith
Food has a way of bringing people together. Diners let their guards down over the appetizer. Over the main course cares ease and the mind starts to be refreshed. Over dessert and coffee people bond and heal and share their lives. Sometimes it feels as if one had the right menu we could reconcile the world.
